Jihad in the UK a “generational problem”, won’t be going away anytime soon: ex-Director General of MI5
The UK might “face an Islamist terrorist threat for the next 30 years,” warns country’s former spy chief. According to Jonathan Evans, who resigned as Director General of MI5 four years ago, threat of Jihad to the country was a “generational problem” and won’t be going away anytime soon. “I think that we are going to be facing 20, 30 years of terrorist threats,” Evans told BBC.
Britain has been rocked by four Jihadi terror attacks this year. The worst of which took place at the London Bridge in the beginning of June, where three Islamic terrorists drove a van into passers-by and subsequently went into a stabbing spree, killing 8 and injuring 48 others. Most of these assailants come from Britain’s vast migrant Muslim population.
London-based Telegraph reported former spy chief’s grim assessment:
Jonathan Evans, who stepped down as director general of the spy agency in 2013, described the threat as a “generational problem” which will take decades to tackle. (…)
Lord Evans, who now sits in the House of Lords as a crossbench peer, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “I think on the terrorism side we are at least 20 years into this. My guess is that we will still be dealing with the long tail in another 20 years time.
“I think this is genuinely a generational problem. When I left MI5 in 2013 if I had been asked I would have said that I thought that we probably were over the worst of the al-Qaeda threat. (…)
“I think that we are going to be facing 20, 30 years of terrorist threats and therefore we need absolutely critically to persevere and just keep doing it.”
The majority of the UK’s 3 million-strong Muslims population originates from the Indian Subcontinent, mainly Pakistan and Bangladesh. Islamist mobilisation that began in these countries in the late 70s and led to the formation of Islamic terror groups such as Taliban and Al Qaeda has radicalised parts of the country’s immigrant Muslim population.
Their growing demographic strength has encouraged the migrant Muslims to assert their political will on the country as well. According to a survey conducted by the UK broadcaster Channel 4 last year, 23 percent of British Muslims expressed public support for the introduction of Sharia Law to the country. Though a third of them were totally down with male polygamy, over half of them wanted homosexuality to be made illegal.
Despite having to do without Sharia Law, which includes social pastimes such as public stoning of women and cliff-jumping for gay people—albeit without the safety cord, nearly 90 percent of the Muslim respondents agreed that “Britain was a good place for Muslims to live in”.
Well, at least Multiculturalism is working for someone. Maybe not so much for the female Muslim victims of child marriage, genital mutilation or ‘honour’ killings, but Europe’s political elite and media are too busy celebrating their imported diversity to care about such nitty-gritty.
The former MI5 chief is correct in calling Islamism a “generational problem” for the UK. Europe’s coming generations will be condemned to deal with the consequences of today’s unregulated mass migration from Arab and Muslim countries.
